Antonio Conte has placed complete faith in his Chelsea players to win the Premier League title.
The West London club landed their 21st win of the season while remaining on top of the table with a 2-1 win over West Ham United at the London Stadium last night.
The result has Chelsea on 66 points which sees them sitting 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, 11 ahead of third-placed Manchester City, and further clear of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United, and Conte expects his players to continue on their merry way in the final 11 fixtures of the campaign.
“I must have confidence in my players,” said the Italian.
“Until now, we have deserved to stay on top of the table. For sure, it won’t be easy to stay there because Tottenham and City, also Liverpool, are there.
“To see Arsenal drop three points and Manchester United drop two points [this weekend] was very important because the games are starting to be fewer, but this league will still be really tough until the end.
“I listen to the other coaches of the other teams, and they trust [themselves] to win. And it’s right to have this ambition.
“It’s important for us to know the others have this ambition so that we keep our own anger and will to fight and stay on top of the league.
“I trust my players to do this because they are showing me great commitment not only in games, but during the week: in every training session, great will to work and improve, to improve our work. I trust them. Absolutely.”
